This "photo" an aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy (TEM) at real atomic-level resolution. Shows the detailed structure of the ellipsoidal D5d-C80 fullerene body.

There is a rotatable model of C80 D5d here.

To my knowledge this is the first C80 D5d MOC.


The Home of Republic of Texas Navy in LEGOs is right here on MOCpages.

I have a private Lego Student named Buckey, he is named after this! I have sent him the link too! As I mentioned on LUGNET, these should be LEGO educational kits!
